Stick a fork in me because Blithe is done!
Also, because I'm as plump as roasting hen.
Pilates, here I come.
Pattern: Blithe, by Kim Hargreaves. The pattern is very well written: there's alot going on in the pattern, but it spells it out so that you can do it at once. The pattern is interesting, and has a lovely tailored result to it. The next time I do this pattern, I'll do it in the round, because the stocking stitch (the back piece) damned near killed me with boredom.
Yarn: Paton's 4ply tumble rich yarn in chocolate. The yarn sucks: plasticky, splitty, the less said about that the better. In retrospect I should have used the yarn provided. Next time.
Mods: Different yarn, short row shaping for shoulders.
Size: 34" - could have gone up a size - or lose a stone! Will do the latter.
